"RF-246 is a uniquely constructed craft incorporating many lamination and assembly techniques that set it apart from other boats. The main construction consists of five heavily laminated, one-piece molded fiberglass components:
The Hull incorporates a gunwale flange around the total parameter. This inward flange is heavily laminated to provide exceptional stiffness to the hull and support for the deck and superstructure. The floor stringer framing includes the forward furniture liner, forward floor, main cabin and cockpit sole. The under-floor cavities on both sides of the center area of the hull are totally injected with closed cell expanded flotation foam from the transom to the main dash bulkhead area. The main gunwale deck is adhered and mechanically fastened to the gunwale flange. It includes inner coamings and non skid surface molded in the gelcoat during lamination. The superstructure includes wheelhouse, trunk cabin, windshield facets. It is molded to fit down into the inner coamings of the gunwale deck and is adhesed in place as well as through bolted with stainless steel bolts. It is flanged inward at the top of the parameter and down the back ends for maximum strength and the attachment of the one piece roof and main back bulkhead. The dash - companionway bulkhead is built to accept the one-piece sliding companionway door and operator console. It is a cored structure with flanges at the top and bottom and is fiberglassed and mechanically fastened in place. The companionway door is one-piece top and door that slides in high density polyethylene slider rails. The rear cabin bulkhead is a one-piece cored unit that is adhesed and mechanically fastened to the rear flanges of the superstructure. The main door is a large slider that is mounted to and slides in its high density polyethylene slider rails. Pilot door on starboard side of the wheelhouse is one-piece cored component mounted in high density polyethylene sliders... Wheelhouse and main salon - cockpit floors are one-piece molded cored components that incorporate molded non skid surface. The steering and control console is a one-piece molded unit incorporating special areas for large electrical breaker panel, steering (hydraulic or mechanical), engine instrumentation gauges, etc. The console is easily removable as well as there being a large access panel in the main dash bulkhead to the wiring and console equipment. The roof is molded one-piece and includes non-skid surface and adhesives to the superstructure flanges, stainless steel fastened as well. The entire superstructure is treated with fire-retardant resin coatings. The entire bilge area is treated with fire retardant water barrier resin coatings. All adhesives are high-quality silicones and marine compounds. Gelcoats are isotyhalic salt-water-grade and initial skinning resins are special osmosis resistant polyester. Fire retardant resin coatings are waxed pigmented off white color. The fire retardant resin coating in the hull and bilge areas are a moisture resistant barrier as well." ~ Rosborough
